Tricky words

Phase 2


Recap the phase 2 words using the green tricky words mat below.

Task 1- Read through each word together. Discuss the words and see if children can put them in a verbal sentence. Challenge them to use two tricky words in one sentence.

Task 2- Tricky words game. Give children a word and see how fast they can point to the word. You can do this by writing the words in your book or touching them on the picture below. 

Task 3- Write each tricky word on a little piece of paper. Spell all of them right and then write them again with them all wrong, so you should have a full set of correctly spelt words and a full set of misspelt words. Scrunch up the words and see how quickly children can open the paper, read the word and identify if it is spelt right or wrong.


Phase 3 tricky words

Look at the list of phase 3 tricky words on the purple picture below. Read through the words. Children should know the words- he, she, we, me, be and you. 

Task 1- Read through the tricky words children already know and encourage children to produce a verbal sentence for each word. 

Task 2- Focus on the tricky words- are, her and was. Put these words in a verbal sentences again to show children understand how to use the words. 

Task 3- In your lined books or on the class notebook for phonics on teams, practice spelling each word until you are confident spelling without looking. Once you have done this, write each word in a sentence.
